SECOND HEAD ON CRASH ON RIVER BRIDGE

Just before noon today a report of a head-on crash was received by 911 operators. For the second time in twelve hours Needham Road Fire Department and MCHD responded. When they arrived they found a 1977 motorhome against the guardrail of the San Jacinto River bridge with extensive right front damage. A female passenger was entrapped with extensive trauma to her legs. Firefighters and medics worked to free her. She and the driver were transported.

Approximately two hundred feet east on the eastbound lanes was a Chevrolet sedan with heavy front end damage. The female driver of that vehicle was also transported but in stable condition.

Early investigation showed that the motor home was westbound on SH 242 when a mechanical issue, possibly a blown tire took it across the eastbound lanes striking and partially climbing the bridge railing. It then struck the Ford head-on and continued down SH 242 coming to rest on the westbound shoulder.

The bridge was once again closed and reopened at approximately 3 p.m.
